Overview

Murder makes a debut on the London social scene in this Regency-era mystery by the author of Death Comes to the Village.



With the reluctant blessings of their father, the rector of Kurland St. Mary, Lucy Harrington and her sister Anna leave home for a social season in London. At the same time, Lucy's special friend Major Robert Kurland is summoned to the city to accept a baronetcy for his wartime heroism.



Amidst the dizzying whirl of balls and formal dinners, the focus shifts from mixing and matchmaking to murder when the dowager Countess of Broughton, the mother of an old army friend of Robert, drops dead. When it's revealed she's been poisoned, Robert's former betrothed, Miss Chingford, is accused, and she in turn points a finger at Anna. To protect her sister, Lucy enlists Robert's aid in drawing out the true culprit.



But with suspects ranging from resentful rivals and embittered family members to the toast of the ton, it will take all their sleuthing skills to unmask the poisoner before more trouble is stirred up . . .

Set in 1817, Lloyd’s engaging follow-up to 2013’s Death Comes to the Village takes Lucy Harrington and her younger sister, Anna, from their home in tiny Kurland St. Mary to London. There they hope to find a suitable husband for Anna through the patronage of their uncle, the Earl of Clavelly. Meanwhile, their irascible neighbor, Maj. Robert Kurland, receives a letter from the Prince Regent, who wishes to make him a baronet for his heroism at the Battle of Waterloo. Robert dislikes the prospect of such official recognition, but in the end he follows the Harrington sisters to London, where he soon runs into an old army colleague, Lieutenant Broughton. When Broughton’s sharp-tongued grandmother and wastrel brother die under suspicious circumstances after the grandmother is accused of jewel theft, Robert and Lucy investigate. Regency fans will find plenty to like, though some readers may be disappointed by a paltry array of suspects. Agent: Deidre Knight, Knight Agency. (Dec.)
